5 Reasons Why It’s Okay To Take Halloween Candy From Your Kids
Halloween is coming!
Let me tell you.
1. I Bought Their Halloween Costumes
That’s right. They wouldn’t have any costumes if it weren’t for me, therefore, they wouldn’t be given candy at all.
2. I’m Taking Them Around The Neighborhood
Instead of being stretched out on the couch watching Grey’s Anatomy, I’m taking the kids out. I’m dodging families on sidewalks. I’m making sure my kids don’t get squished by cars that aren’t paying attention. I’m reminding them to say “thank you,” because sometimes the excitement of a full size
candy bar erases their memory.
3. I Need Candy More Than They Do
I have to deal with the headaches of the world: people who don’t use turn signals. People who write ‘your welcome.’ Kanye West. Bills. Car issues. This is what they have to deal with: homework. Minecraft drama.
4. I Check Their Candy To Ensure They Won’t Be Poisoned
Yup. I lovingly dump it all out and make sure there isn’t a hidden pin or booger anywhere. They wouldn’t check before they popped something in their mouth. I saved their esophagus. You’re welcome, guys.
5. I Gave Them Life
That’s right. I carried them around for ten months. I pushed them out of me. This entitles me to a Twix and a box of Nerds.
So do you take Halloween candy from your kids?
